Hopes dashed before we even knew to get them up

Chad Jennings of the LoHud Yankees blog says it's unlikely that Andy will return to Houston in 2010. Not that anyone ever thought that would happen, anyway. Especially after Letterman made fun of it...

Now that Pettitte is a free agent again, a second homecoming seems unlikely.

He goes on to quote Ed Wade:
“We have to be realistic of what our situation is at the moment. Right now we have Oswalt, Wandy, Norris. We picked up Moehler’s option. And we need to give opportunities to Paulino or Bazardo or Lopez. If we can improve our situation, we’ll try to do that, but at this point in time, we’re pretty much focused on the guys that we have right now and we’ll see what’s out there on the edges. We can’t add appreciable payroll. We’ve indicated that publicly, our payroll is going to go in the opposite direction.”
